Buying an existing business can often be easier than starting from scratch.

The website aggregates numerous business sale listings, of which the names and locations are generally left out, but there are some exceptions.
Reasons for selling, when provided, typically do not mention economic hardship, but more often involve the owner retiring or not having time to actively run the business.
